Some history of the Black's Head at Abbot's Bromley in the County of Staffordshire
In the early 19th century this tavern traded as the Black-a-Moor's Head.
I have not researched this public-house in any detail. However, I thought I would upload a photograph so at least there is something to look at. I have also included the names of a few licensees. Oh, and an old newspaper article. So, better than a blank page but a lot of work needed. In the meantime, there is a lot of information on Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"An Abbot's Bromley labourer named John Bettany died from the effects of sunstroke last week. Deceased was engaged in haymaking
for Mr. Wilson, of the Bagot Arms, and on coming down from the rick he complained of feeling unwell and became unconscious almost immediately, remaining in that condition
until death, which occurred 48 hours later. It was not, deemed necessary to hold an inquiry."
